Hello,

My name is Marius and I am 31 old.4 weeks ago I had vaginal sex and oral sex with a sexworker protected. I protected all the time. Only a week after I started having various symptoms . Now after 4 weeks I took the first test and the result are :

Anti - HIV 1+2-Ser / electrochemiluminiscenta (HIV combi)--------------Negative

RPR cantitativ --Ser / Metoda imunoturbidimetrica ----------------------Negative

Anticorpi Treponema pallidum - cantitativ ---Ser / ECLIA--TPLA-----------Negative


Even if the test came out negative after 4 weeks , I worry because I had a healed wound on his penis and think not to have taken any virus even if I protected.
I would be eternally grateful if you would tell how conclusive test is done only after 4 weeks.

Thank you very much

Hello and thanks for reaching out to the AIDS Vancouver Helpline.

It sounds like you have some concerns about your HIV test results.

First off, it is great that you pursued HIV testing. This action alone can be quite stressful, but here at AIDS Vancouver we recommend routine testing as it is a great way to stay up to date on your current HIV status. At this given time your test taken 4 weeks post exposure produced a negative result which is a good indicator of your current HIV status. However, it is important to note that official guidelines recommend re-testing at 12 weeks post exposure for completely conclusive results.

If the symptoms that you have described continue to be prevalent, then it might be best to partner with your personal doctor so the symptoms can be addressed in a timely and proper fashion.

For more information on HIV testing you can visit [AVERT Testing](http://www.avert.org/hiv-testing).

Thank you for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline.
